The Series' Top 10 Predator Themes

Discuss the possibilities for "Batman: Arkham Knight" and the future of the Arkham series after Rocksteady Studios' swansong.

The Series' Top 10 Predator Themes

Postby ZANIACK » Jan 29th, 2016, 8:16 am

The Arkham games have great soundtracks, and the music for its stealth gameplay outclasses all other stealth games. I've compiled a list of my favorite themes to share my admiration for these fantastic stealth sections.

10. Arkham Origins - Gotham City Royal Hotel
Most of Origins' predator tracks are generic and monotonous, but this one excellently captures the game's Christmas setting. It plays once in the main story and also during the Deadshot side mission.

9. Arkham City - Wham, Gotcha!
Plays during both predator segments in the Steel Mill's smelting chamer. It's featured in the first two predator challenge maps.

8. Arkham Knight - Zeppelin
Featured in all of the stealth sections in Stagg's Airships. Slow-paced but epic. It's a potential track for every single AR predator room.

7. Arkham Knight - Panessa Studios Theme (unreleased)
The most common track in Arkham Knight. It's also one that will potentially play during any predator challenge.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=souBIbt ... b&index=26
6. Arkham City - You Should Have Listened to My Warning
Used in over half of the stealth sections of AC's main story (way too dam much) but never in the challenge maps.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43FOB3W ... tb&index=7
5. Arkham Knight - The Hunter
Criminally underused in the base game. Only used in one real predator encounter in the main story and later in the Mr. Freeze Most Wanted mission.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qi_xhWH ... b&index=23
4. Arkham City - Lost City Theme (unreleased)
Plays only once in the main game's Lost City and in the challenge map. I was happy to hear it play during many of Knight's Militia Watchtower missions.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IfjDg1 ... tb&index=8
3. Arkham City - I Think You Should Do As He Says
Only used in one proper predator room in the entire campaign. I'm glad it was at least in a couple challenge maps. Bizarrely, it played once in AK during the huge brawl against Deacon Blackfire's cult followers.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCA1L-L ... tb&index=4
2. Arkham Asylum - Garden Predator
Easily the best of AA's predator tracks, but also the least used. Every layer is fantastic. It plays in the Botanical Gardens Glasshouse and the Hothouse Prey DLC map (Fun Fact: I had the #1 time on the PS3 leaderboards of exactly 20.00 seconds).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xzckzpi ... iewKC7Ldtb
1. Arkham Knight - Fear Within
Both variants are incredible, and each play a couple times in the campaign. Shamefully, it's not featured in any AR Challenge (except for Endless Knight), even the Chemical Reaction map. Hearing this during GCPD Lockdown is pretty much the only reason I was even satisfied with the episode.

Unreleased version:
I prefer this one for its loud percussion.

This may be better suited for the top 10 thread in the off topic part of the forum.

I guess just copy the list and scroll down to the off topic part of the forum and find the top 5-10 thread and paste it there.

Oh, I thought I could somehow move this thread to that sub forum.

The one that first played in Origins in the Royal Hotel foyer was one that always struck me as being very Batman-y.
Same with the one at the top of Wonder Tower in AC.
And the one that plays during the Clock Tower predator section in AK.
And most of AA's themes were pretty epic.



Yeah, it the entire series has some awesome soundtracks...
